Our good buddy, Kele Goodwin's, amazing album Hymns is now available for a limited run on vinyl and I'll be damned if we didn't make sure to get our hands on a couple... Kele has been a friend of mine for over a decade and I've admired his music for as long as I've known him. So happy to have these to offer you.
Original notes on the album:
Kele Goodwin has spent his life in three places: in Juneau, Alaska; on the Navajo Nation; and in the misty Pacific Northwest. He makes music that sings from bone marrow, from a life and landscape alternately charted and lost, crushed and rebuilt. It is music made familiar by the experience of pain and its lessons. It is music to live by.
Goodwin’s debut album Hymns was produced by Sean Ogilvie of Musé Méchanique and features guest performances from Laura Gibson, Alela Diane, Ogilvie himself, Douglas Jenkins of The Portland Cello Project, and many others. His lyrics are both observation and prayer, delicate lines built on an architecture of gratitude and disbelief of the world around him.
